This course has been retired. Thank you, Pascal!

This course covers the basic principles behind the organization of modern computers. It starts with machine representation of data types and logic design, then explores the architecture and operations of computer systems, including I/O, pipelining, and memory hierarchies. Assembly language is introduced as an intermediate abstraction and is used to study introductory operating system and compiler concepts. Prerequisite: CSCI0150, CSCI0180 or CSCI0190.
